"Out in the woods Or in the city
It's all the same to me When I'm drivin' free, the world's my Home- When I'm mobile!"

over 40% of surveys are currently being taken via tablet / smartphone...

Many companies, including Research NOW are currently offering survey platform solutions, apps and dashboards which fully support smartphone and tablet interface. Gone are the days of limited question types, no video streaming and limited technology. Today's mobile solutions are just as robust as their desktop counterparts. With more than 20 question types, full delivery of data formats (ASCII, SPSS, CSV, etc.), video integration, passive and active data capture, plus a whole lot more... Mobile technology is positioned to soon over-take their desktop cousins.
Mobile technology can often times offer more than traditional online research.

For instance:

  • Ability to engage location-based surveys
  • Barcode scanning
  • In the moment survey capabilities
  • Instant response times
  • Ability to participate offline and upload responses when convenient

There are even apps available that provide a non-intrusive view into the life of individuals with a passive metering tool that collects mobile / tablet behavioral data on where they go, their communication patterns, shopping behavior, leisure activities, interests, how they spend their time as well as their life patterns. Not only that, some apps have the ability to collect: App downloads / deletes - App usage: foreground, background - Phone usage: incoming, outgoing, missed - Text / SMS usage: sent, received - Emails: sent, received - Website visits: sites visited, book marked - GPS location - Music played: album, artist - Camera Use
